St Malo memorial, Jersey island – April 2012
On April 17 1995, a French ferry, the Saint Malo en route from Jersey to Sark in the Channel Islands, struck a rock 900m north of Corbiere ligthhouse. The vessel started sinking, but because of the rapid response of Jersey emergency services and many civilian boats in the area, all 307 passengers and crew were brought to safety. This evocative stone memorial was erected as a tribute to all those involved in the rescue.
